Flower Gardening

Everyone loves a beautiful flower garden, but they don't get to be so beautiful on their own. While many grow them for the enjoyment, as well as for the beauty and sometimes profit, a lot of knowledge and work goes into that beauty! Ask your questions about the propagation, planting, maintenance, trouble shooting, harvesting, enjoyment, and more of flower gardening. Questions about famous flower gardens around the world are welcome, too!

How do you look blooming?

User Avatar
First of all, everyone should be conscious of their diet, eat lots of vegetables instead of oily meat or what so ever that contains oils that means food that are fried. Avoid staying up to late, water and Sleep is the key for beautiful and fresh looking skin. every one should drink more than 8 glasses of water a day because water helps detoxify our body by means of urinating. also dont stress your self doing things that are not important which only gives you stress. Always think positive and don't think of your problem too much in short avoid anything that will only make you stress. Relax and meditate once a week or even twice it will help you for sure. that's it. you'll see your face bloom. enjoy. -BCR

Can you use weed and feed in your flower beds?

User Avatar
Yes. It should be used between flower groupings and roots, not directly applied very near flower roots and root groups. Careful application and proper watering are the keys to success. I strongly disagree with the above recommendation. "Weed and feed" is a combination of fertilizer and herbicide, the latter specifically designed to kill broad-leaved plants without harming turf grasses. Using it in your garden would be fine only if you only wanted monocots (grasses) to thrive, and wanted to suppress or kill all dicots (broad-leaved and woody plants). Roots from broad-leaved plants typically grow outward from a central stem at least twice as far as above ground portions (branches and leaves), and sometime many times farther than that. If the roots of desirable plants are exposed to "weed and feed" they will may increase in number and size due to the fertilizer component. Depending on the herbicide's mode of action, the fertilizer can enable the roots to carry more of the herbicide back to the plant. Once absorbed by the roots, the effectiveness of the herbicide will be determined by the amount taken in, and the species tolerance of or vulnerability to the herbicide used. Most "weed and feed" formulations have labels that include a warnings against using the product anywhere near a garden bed and desirable broad-leaved plants.

Do sunflower grow better in pots or in ground?

User Avatar
Unless you grow a dwarf type of sunflower, such as "Teddy bear" you would not grow them in pots. Most sunflowers grow tall, and become rather top-heavy. Sunflowers need lots of room to grow--including the roots, which need to spread out beneath the soil in order to anchor the plant. Even muli-stemmed sunflowers, whose individual flowers are fairly small (for a sunflower), get top-heavy because of the number of flowers on the stem. So, if you absolutely MUST grow one in a pot, select the shortest cultivar you can, and still put that in an over-sized pot. So, sunflowers grow better in the ground, but it is possible and challenging to grow them in pots.

If April showers bring May flowers what do Mayflowers bring?

User Avatar
Mayflowers bring pilgrims. May Flowers will bring June Bugs. The original poem by Sara Coleridge: January brings the snow, Makes our feet and fingers glow. February brings the rain, Thaws the frozen lake again. March brings breezes loud and shrill, Stirs the dancing daffodil. April brings the primrose sweet, Scatters daises at our feet. May brings flocks of pretty lambs, Hay Fever Skipping by their fleecy dams. June brings tulips, lilies, roses, Fills the children's hand with posies. Hot July brings cooling showers, Apricots and gillyflowers. August brings the sheaves of corn, Then the harvest home is borne. Warm September brings the fruit, Sportsmen then begin to shoot. Fresh October brings the pheasants, Then to gather nuts is pleasant. Dull November brings the blast, Then the leaves are whirling fast. Chill December brings the sleet, Blazing fire, and Christmas treat.

Asked in Flower Gardening, Botany or Plant Biology, Soil

Is it possible for plants to grow in sand?

User Avatar
Plants can not grow in sand alone. If you provide the necessary nutrients and water, as in Hydroponic gardening, then you can grow healthy plants in sand or gravel. But that is not 'sand alone'. Likewise, plants will grow well in sand that has organic material and other soil enrichers mixed into it. Again, that is not 'sand alone'. Plants can grow in just about any medium, as long as they have water and nutrients. Unfortunately, sand doesn't hold onto water and it contains no organic material, so there is nothing for plants to use for nourishment. As you can see at a beach or in a sand desert, some plant species have evolved to handle conditions close to 'sand alone', usually by sending roots down far enough to find water, or by growing very fast whenever there is a rain, or by absorbing the rainwater quickly and storing it for future use. However, even these plants can only survive where there are some nutrients mixed in the sand. Pure sand will not do. (Please note: this question concerns growing in 'sand alone', not 'sandy soil' or 'in a desert'.)
